Sedimentary rocks

Sedimentary rocks are called seocndary rocks because they are often the result of the accumulation of small pieces broken off from preexisting rocks and then pressed into a new form .
Types of Sedimentary Rocks

Tides is a word used to describe the alternating rise and fall in sea level with respect to the land, produced by the gravitational attraction of the moon and the sun.
